Cloth Diaper Facts:

~ Did you know that there are over 50,000 diapers per day(in the entire world) that end up in our landfills! And that they can take over 500 years or more to become composted.

~ Each regular diaper is make with a certain chemical that they recalled from using in tampons that was giving women cancer!
~ Did you know that by the time your child is out of diapers, you would of spent around $2,850.oo the entire time they are in diapers. This is including pull-ups and wipes. For only one child.
~ It is not good to use any bleech, vinegar, or fabric softener when washing your cloth diapers. It will eat away the fabric and make them less absorbent and make holes in the fabric.
~ It is not good to use baby ointment when using cloth diapers. It is best to only use non-chemically treated products, or use all natural products. Most are safe, but to make sure your diaper stays safe, always use a liner!
~ Not only will you be saving money, but also the environment. With every 1 baby using cloth diapers there is one less garbage bag per family going into our landfills.
~ Cloth diapers do not have to be expensive! You can save by buying used or by buying one size instead of using sized diapers!
